:00, there are reports of shooting and smoke rising at the consulate in benghazi, 800 miles away. at 7:51 p.m., reuters reports at least one american was dead at our consulate in benghazi. we now know the romney campaign was discussing the events unfolding in the middle east throughout the day. as governor romney flew from nevada to florida, his top foreign policy and political advisers held a conference call to discuss what they would say about the crisis. well, when romney landed, they showed him a statement and he approved it. it said, i'm outraged by the attacks on american diplomatic missions in libya and egypt and by the death of an american consulate worker in benghazi. it's disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn the attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks. the campaign did exactly what mitt romney promised his high-dollar donors he would do in may. he attempted to capitalize on a foreign crisis. look at the statement again. "it's disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn att

the attack in benghazi. was it sparked by the protests or was it preplanned? >> the point is you can make assumptions. we do not yet have indication that it was preplanned or premeditated. >> and yet on the same day at a senate hearing, a member of the obama administration, the director of the national counterterrorism center gave the most detailed picture of this we've heard yet. seems to contradict what jay carney said. >> they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. what we don't have at this point is specific intelligence that there was a significant advanced planning or coordination for this attack. >> senators including susan collins were not satisfied with that answer and that version of events. >> i have come to the opposite conclusion and agree with the president of libya that this was a premeditated, planned attack. i just don't think that people come to protest equipped with heavy weapons. >> what we may be seeing is an attempt between opportunistic aspirational attack that maybe that's what intelligence officials believed, al qaeda in north africa was t
